the business savvy and know-how to right the country's economy, and put hi its fiscal budget in order. only jon huntsman has come out and said there needs to be a deal, embracing things that haven't been embraced by conservative republicans. they're all reluctant to take leadership and advocacy on this, with the compensation of bachmann. the speaker has had close calls putting the votes together, and presidential candidates don't want to be held responsible for that. >> bret: in fact, some of them have stayed away from the whole issue. mitt romney hasn't weighed n has he? >> he says he supports what boehner is doing, but refuses to take a position on the latest boehner compromise. romney, the rest of the field, really did sort of support the original cut, cap and balance proposal, but it's since been modified so many times over that it's almost as though they're punting on the attempts to keep up with the various different -- variations coming out. for romney particularly, he's been absent, and criticized for not taking a position as loud as he might. >> bret: okay, carl, thank you. just a few

are in new hampshire. jon huntsman is in utah, herman cain at the freedom fest in las vegas. and cbs is reporting in 2 1/2 weeks as a candidate, michele bachmann has raised $4 million. >>> it's just two days until casey anthony is a free woman, but her legal troubles may not be over yet. in a florida courtroom this morning, zenaida gonzales is suing anthony for defamation. although a short time ago the hearing was adjourned and another judge will take over that case. gonzalez says her reputation was trashed when anthony claimed a babysitter with the same name kidnapped her daughter caylee in 2008. and casey anthony has been getting plenty of mail, both death threats and nearly $500 in donations from supporters. joining me now is jeff gardier and robi ludwig. what's going on is pretty amazing. let's start with something we learned about in oklahoma because people are so wrapped up in this case, a woman apparently went after someone else in their car because she thought she looked like casey anthony. what are we to make of something like that, jeff? >> it just tells us that casey antho
. paul, what do you have? >> reporter: let's talk -- start with jon huntsman. i guess call it 2.0. remember, he jumped into the race for the white house about a month or two ago? a lot of fan fare but not rising in the polls. in fact, not doing much at all in the polls. what do you do? i guess you shake things up if that is the case. changes campaign manager last week. now a newer maybe tougher jon huntsman on the campaign trill. heard it yesterday in new hampshire. aggressive going after president obama and aggressive going after mitt romney who is considered i guess right now in the early stages of this race the front-runner for the gop nomination. campaign aides to huntsman say expect to hear more of that. >>> george pataki, i guess we have to talk about him. three terms in the '90s and last decade as well as governor of new york. he is in new hampshire today and tomorrow. last week, in iowa. the first two states in the presidential primary and caucus calendars calendar. does this mean he is thinking about running for the white house? yeah, an adviser to him, a spokesman says
are not? >> no, i it does not. as jon kyl has reported to you on the endless discussions that have gone on, we have become increasingly pessimistic that we will be able to reach an agreement with the only person in america and consign something into law, and that is the president of the united states. this is not my first choice. my first choice is to get an agreement with the president to significantly reduce spending. and we will continue to talk to them about that in the hopes that we can get there. that is what we think is the single biggest problem. >> what would you and republicans agreed to essentially raising the debt ceiling without getting our spending cuts? >> what we are not going to be of party to in the senate, i am pretty confident, it is the fault for the only way you can get an agreement that actually achieve something is when the president signs it. to actually reduce spending requires not just republicans, but a democratic senate and a democratic president. and we're still hoping to achieve spending reductions that he will sign. that is our first choice. i am going to ta
the speeches from this weekend, the speech speeches from- president obama and senator jon kyl of arizona. >> the plan would force us to relive this crisis in a few short months. it would hold washington captain to politics once again. that is not acceptable. any solution to avoid default must be bipartisan. it must have the support of both parties that were sent here to represent the american people. not just one faction of one party. there are multiple ways to resolve this problem. congress must find common ground on a plan that can get support from both parties in the house and the senate. it has got to be a plan i can sign by tuesday. the parties are not that far apart. we have agreement on how much needs to be cut to reduce our deficit. we have agreed on how to tackle entitlement reform. there are plenty of ways out of this mess. there is little time. we need to reach a compromise by tuesday so that our country will have the ability to pay its bills on time. bills like contract we have signed with thousands of american businesses. if we don't, we could use our -- lose our country's a
folbaum in for jon scott. julie: i'm julie banderas, and "happen position now", we are awaiting a news conference from president obama, with time running out to reach a deal on the debt crisis, remember, that looming debt crisis will expire august 2nd, they need to come up with a solution. the shedown is now turning ugly after an emergency meeting on sunday, republicans, democrats and the president, still not seeing eye to eye, failing to break the deadlock could lead to catastrophe, rick. rick: mike emanuel is live at the white house. as we wait for the president, what are we expecting him to say? >> essentially to make the case that he needs a deal, he wants a deal, and he told both sides, both the house and senate, republicans and democrats last night when they left, to come back with an idea of what would pass their respective houses, and so we expect the president to set the stage, if you will, for today's meeting, which is set for 2:00, and to try to take his case right to the american people, to say you know, we need to get something done, august 2nd is coming. and we need basic
reid, jon kyl, the speaker of the house, john boehner, as well as eric cantor. that would be the group we're hearing would be involved in the invitation to talk about the debt crisis. and i'm also told that meeting is tentatively scheduled for thursday. so that's the latest we have here from capitol hill. >> thursday, kate, at the white house? >> that's what we're hearing right now, yes. >> oing, kate baldwin, glad we got you to pick up your blackberry. before we were talking about a bipartisan group, it was a gang of six. now we're hearing the big eight. so that make sense. if we hit the august deadline, nothing is done. if a compromise is met, what message that sends to america. >> even as the administration changes the exact wording they're using, instead of saying america won't meet its bills, they're saying america won't be able to pay some of its bills, we'll have to choose what things we can pay right there. we desperately needed the economy to get better. >> it's not time to play politics. we realize that going into an election year. >> senator sessions, i spoke with him last w
in his district. in fact, the first one's going to be august 7th with jon huntsman. a little later in the month, august 25th, michele bachmann will appear. he says he's going to have all the questions come from the audience, they'll pick them out, whatever the question is, he will ask the candidate. this is pretty interesting, because on labor day, we'll see senator jim demint, south carolina senator, he's holding a similar type of forum. in the past it's been the media, been us, we've done a good job of it, but now the lawmakers want to get involved as well. >> i'm sure they do. mark, i want to ask you to stick around. this is rare. no real news value to this story, but this video has gone viral and we have to share this video of two dogs, one starts with a fight with his friend, then you see that? he gets bitten, then boom, this dog actually plays dead, then he gets up, does it again. you've got to watch this carefully. scuffle, bitten on the neck, boom, goes down, plays dead. then looks, is he still here? raises his head. isn't that hilarious? >> he deserves an oscar. good lord.

, after the media hype, it didn't work. it's passed away. >> we go from jon huntsman to tim pawlenty, a very nice guy, successful minnesota governor. yet the iowa poll that came out suggests tim pawlenty is in big trouble. >> he can't great through. he's on the sunday shows, making speeches at cfr, but he hovers around the 9% margin. if he doesn't make a move quickly, he better watch it. >> a cautionary note on pawlenty. he's been in iowa working for i don't know how long. he's got to be organized for the iowa straw polls in august. i think he's got to outperform whatever present number he has. michele bachmann has been in there three weeks. you have to organize the state and the community. he's probably been in all 99 counties. he might have a surprise showing in the iowa aim straw poll. unless he does, he's in, what was it, deep doo-doo. >> one way to look at it. >> do we arrive at a point where republican candidates -- >> that's the big question. to what degree is this base going to go with anybody but barack? i think romney will prove that out. the race is so unsettled at this po

was going for it except for eric cantor and jon kyl. this time the crowd of opponents was bigger but one important person, john boehner. the important thing to remember here is scaling back from $4 trillion to 2.5 trillion does not make any of the big issues go away. sooner or later republicans are going to have to swallow some revenue increases. host: what is the purpose of today's news conference from the president? caller: the purpose for the president is to set a delicate balance. on the one hand he wants to claim the political high ground, i assume, saying that he tried and pushed for historic bipartisan achievement. unfortunately, we will like it there. the reason is that republicans will not sign on to a bold, $1 trillion tax overhaul. so, he wants to show the voters that he is the big negotiator. everything that he said the revlon in 2008. but he does not want to poison the well to make these negotiations for the rest of the week. >> what is the main message coming from republicans going into this meeting? >> it would seem that their main message is probably going to stay the sam
alluded to looking at this field that is coming together over the next several days. jon kyl rarely does anything by mistake, the republican of arizona, number two in the senate. he rarely ever utters a word by mistake. but accident. so i think that was pretty telling. it would be easy enough for them to extent the debt limit for a couple of days to buy them some time. they have always said they would do it if they knew they were close to a deal coming together. >> jenna: so what does this look like? being that you have been able to walk the halls there in congress, and see what the work is like being done. so what is actually happening behind closed doors right now? are they writing up a bill? is something starting from scratch? are they amending something already out there? what needs to be done before it could even start its way through congress, whatever path that is? >> remember, they have been doing this in one shape or another for almost a year now, believe it or not. they have a menu, what aides will describe often as a menu of options. and there is nothing that is really going t
